Geocaching, a GPS adventure game played worldwide, is gaining followers, with students at Oswego's Kingsford Park Elementary School leading the way.

The game, introduced to KPS sixth-graders two years ago by physical education teacher Deb Ferlito, is similar to a scavenger hunt, explained Ferlito. The idea is to have individuals and organizations hide caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the Internet. Teams are then each given a GPS system, in which they can plug in the location coordinates to find the caches, she said.
